  1. I recently had pancakes topped with fresh pineapple, fresh whipped cream and mint - I imagine you could make this into a dessert by using the combo in crepes instead or as a topping for angel food cake.

      1. My favorite is one that I have had at many great restaurants...Simply grilled, along side a bowl of yummy caramel sauce...Divine!

        1. My husband grills slices of fresh pineapple after marinating in 1) lime juice, salt and pepper or 2) rum, lime juice and a sprinkling of sugar. The grilled pinapple is then served with a scoop of homemade ice cream (we've tried all sorts - strawberry or raspberry sorbet, and vanilla, honey, or strawberry ice cream) or a light dressing of vanilla yogurt.

          1. I made a recipe with canned crushed pineapple, which you can use by chopping
            up the pineapple, It is my no-bake pineapple cheese pie. I use jell-o, cream cheese
            and cool whip with the pineapple to make a pie that tastes like a cheesecake.

              This wouldn't work with fresh pineapple. The acid would eventually curdle the dairy or just make things separate and go funky.
